We are the
Barcelona English Choir.
250 singers | 35 nationalities | aged 20 – 80
We sing contemporary pop, rock, and alternative music in English.
The Barcelona English Choir was started in 2012 with just 15 members. We have now grown to a vibrant community of 250 singers from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities who meet up on a weekly basis to sing and socialise.
Over the past decade we have performed sold-out concerts in some of the most prestigious venues in Barcelona – L’Auditori, Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, Razzmatazz and Paral·lel 62.
We are a 100% unauditioned group, and we sing custom-made arrangements of pop, rock and alternative songs – from David Bowie and Beyoncé to Kate Bush and The Cure, and much more…

Director - Ed Aldcroft
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music at the University of Cambridge, Ed went on to become a choral director and music educator working with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.
He has led projects in primary and secondary schools, prisons, homeless shelters and care homes – whilst working at The Sage Gateshead, an international centre for music and music education based in the North of England.
Since moving to Barcelona in 2011 Ed has continued to work with choirs, creating singing groups for English-language learners and the wider English-speaking community. Alongside delivering team-buidling workshops for local and international clients, he has also worked as a musical director for school productions, and an accompanist for a variety of different vocal groups here in Barcelona.
He has been singing and playing the piano for over twenty years, and has performed as a pianist and vocalist with many different professional and semi-professional ensembles in the UK and Spain.
